Vendors given 48 hours to cease operations temporarily as typoid outbreak hits Harare

The Harare City Council has issued a two day ultimatum against street vending. Council has also urged people to buy food in licensed premises which meet the required standards of the Public Health Act and other council by-laws.

Said acting corporate communications manager Mr Michael Chideme:

There are issues that we can immediately control/regulate to ensure that we contain the spread of typhoid. One of these is street vending. We are therefore issuing a 48-hour ultimatum to all illegal food vendors operating within the Harare Metropolitan area to cease operations temporarily forthwith. The ban will be reviewed depending on improvements on the ground.

Health Services director Dr Prosper Chonzi urged residents, especially children, to go for early screening in the event of symptoms related to typhoid.
